Summary
This culminating volume in Richard Rhodes's monumental and prizewinning history of nuclear weapons offers the first comprehensive narrative of the challenges faced in a post-Cold War age from the second war in Iraq to the emerging threat of nuclear terrorism, from the changing roles of the five original nuclear powers to our complicated relationships with North Korea and South Asia. Finally, Rhodes imagines what a post-nuclear world might look like, suggesting what might make it possible
